Dropci is a tiny, devastated and currently empty community of family farmers, in northwestern Bosnia and Herzegovina, near the border with Croatia. Its people are still refugees from the war, as the land is strewn with landmines, booby traps and unexploded ordnance. Monterey County, Cali., is known as the "Salad Bowl of the World" for its agricultural abundance, the "Golfing Capital of the World" and the site of the spectacular Big Sur coastline. Dropci and Monterey County are worlds apart.
